    Great at last some infrastructure relief for Thane. Thane is the most densely poted city in Asia. It direly needs support in terms of Infrastructure. Water supply and roads are among the major areas of concern. The roads are highly affected by heavy traffic the new Project of Thane-Kalyan parell Road will ease the heavy traffic build up in this area. All in all good decision by the Union Government.
